    Advice on what to add
    Hey Folks! So as most of us do I have decided I would like to expand one of my current tattoos. I am aware it would have been much better to map out a full back piece from the start but unfortunately that isn't an option for me anymore.  As you can see I have a symmetrical owl on my upper back with lots of extra room on my lats all the way down to my waist line. I have a fair bit of a V taper so anything I add would need to flow in a way that made the owl the dominant subject of the whole tattoo.  I am looking for any advice or suggestions around what could work. Pictures of ideas or themes would be great! Thanks everyone :)

    New to tattoos and need advice
    Hey, I don't know much about tattoos and need advice.  I have my eyebrows and ribs tattooed. I was told by both tattoo artists that my skin is very unusual and doesn't hold ink well haha. You can let me know if thats a real thing.  I got my ribs tattooed in a couple hours on a road trip (...) and the tattoo is patchy blue, purple, and red(ish) with no black. The artist kinda rushed at the end because he was really pervy and could tell I was getting upset. I'm not sure if I should get it outlined or expand on it or cover it up or what?    Also, I encourage anyone who fills in their eyebrows daily to get them tattooed... I'm so happy with how natural and full they turned out.

    Getting logged out after each visit
    Hi, has anybody else had the issue of having to login each time they return to the site? This only started for me in the past few days. I view the site through an Ipad using an old os and safari. Cheers, Sam

    Is there any suggested permanent aftercare to help keep your tattoo healthy other than using sunscreen?   would have posted this in the aftercare section but i can't.
